Cesar Conda is a leading conservative policy advisor and has extensive experience on Capitol Hill and at the White House. From 2001 to 2003, he was Assistant to the Vice President for Domestic Policy. According to columnist Robert Novak, Conda "as Vice President Dick Cheney's domestic policy chief was instrumental in devising the Bush tax cuts." Conda spent most of his professional career in the 1980s and 1990s as a senior staffer in the U.S. Senate, including Administrative Assistant and Legislative Director to former Senator Spencer Abraham (R-MI), where he led a Senate staff that assisted Abraham in authoring 22 pieces of legislation signed into law -- an unprecedented accomplishment for a freshman Senator. He was also Minority Staff Director of the Senate Small Business Committee and Legislative Assistant to former Senator Robert Kasten (R-WI). Additionally, Conda was a policy advisor to the 1996 Dole-Kemp Presidential Campaign and Senior Economic Policy Advisor to the 2008 Mitt Romney for President Campaign. He was also an economic analyst at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Roll Call, a leading Capitol Hill publication, included Conda in its "Fabulous Fifty" list of top congressional aides. In 1999, he received the "Congressional Staffer of the Year Award" from the Information Technology Industry Council. Conda was a member of the Board of Directors of Empower America and the National Fatherhood Initiative. Before joining Senator Rubio’s staff, Conda was a Founding Principal of Navigators Global LLC, a public affairs firm. Conda was also Co-Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Susan. B. Anthony List. Conda earned his bachelor's degree in economics from The College of William and Mary in Virginia.
